SCIENTIST (INTERMEDIATE: AGES 7-9)

This camp is definitely for the child with an inquisitive mind who likes to ask questions to gain a better understanding of the world and how things work.  Each week campers will explore a variety of topics, exploring different theme-based science concepts and discoveries—no two weeks are the same! "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known!"

The list of exciting theme weeks is listed below:

July 1-5: Engineers in Training  How do they build that? Our engineers-in-training will investigate how to design and build the tallest, strongest, most creative and efficient structures out of household materials.

July 8-12: Making Sense of Your Senses  Explore the limits of our five senses and develop an understanding in how our senses of sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell affect our daily lives.

July 15-19: What’s the Weather?  Become a junior meteorologist by investigating the science behind clouds, tornados, hurricanes, typhoons, snow blizzards and a beautiful, warm summer’s day.

July 22-26: Get Energized  Just as our campers are always full of energy, so is this camp! Delve into the science behind different forms of energy such as solar, kinetic, chemical and thermal sources and learn how each play a huge role in our daily lives.

July 29-Aug. 2: Out of this World  Reach for the stars? Not these young astronauts, because for them the stars are only the beginning! Spend a week on a journey with Buzz Lightyear exploring infinity and beyond!

Aug. 5-9: Going Green  As future champions of the Earth, these junior scientists are learning how their ecological and global footprint can influence the atmosphere and all of the ecosystems within it. 

Aug. 12-16: Inside Me  Designed for aspiring young doctors, this camp examines how the human body works by incorporating fun, hands-on activities that delve into aspects of various body systems such as circulatory, respiratory and integumentary systems, just to name a few.

Aug. 19-23: Junior Ecologist  This camp explores various ecosystems and how they are interconnected. Through interactive activities, our young scientists will come to understand the various relationships between species and why each plays an important role in the web of life.

Cost: $399 per week
